Having backdoors in all encryption employed in their jurisdiction would leave their own systems vulnerable.

Should be fun to watch.

It wouldn't apply to government operated systems. Money is no concern to bloated bureaucracies, so they'll just take the price that their vendors list for the special new "government approved" versions without the embedded back door.

That isn't how encryption algorithms work. If the algorithm has a vulnerability that enables you to decrypt it by any means, then all apps using the algorithm are affected.

Compromised applications that preserve reportedly encrypted traffic in an unencrypted way are a separate issue, and definitely a real vector for abuse, but there isn't any real way to implement "safe lane" encryption into an algorithm such that some types of encrypted data is safe while others are vulnerable.

Anything they say they will do has already been implemented and they're getting ahead of leaks or oversight.

Same way vpn restrictions will work, you apply for a license.

As far as I am concerned, this WILL HAPPEN, so my co-op is cozying up to govt already, first govt contracts to bid on already in our SharePoint.

Many of you believe you're the master race, should be easy.

...and somehow the West is better than "those damn commies" in China, Vietnam, or North Korea? I'm starting to have a hard time telling the difference in the media's portrayal.

don't forget Russia. The scapegoat for everything

Pisses me off to no end to see the Jews orchestrating conflict and more war between white nations--the West and Russia. It means they're winning and Trump isn't draining the swamp fast enough.

Russia's population is still recovering from all the deaths under Jewish bloodline leaders and WWII. Europe will be done in a matter of time if there isn't a removal of all the migrants. The USA has problems of its own. To see Western and Russian leaders escalate talks to the point of all out war is unthinkable. Glass. Fucking. Israel. For fucks sake.

Jesus Christ, it's always under the guise of terrorism and security. Fuck off JWO pigs, I don't want you watching me through everything I do more than you already do, zionist pieces of shit.

Time to innovate and adapt something new and better. The next Edward Snowden will not give government information away, but give government technologies away to the masses.

What makes you think there will ever be another Sir Edward in the first place? Why hasn't there been another one in the 5+ years since the initial disclosure?

I reckon it's because the NSA now tracks all its employees 24/7, so the instant one of them strays off the reservation, they're disappeared and MKULTRA reprogrammed; this is provided they all haven't been preemptively reprogrammed already.

Would you put it past them to do something like that? Sir Edward dealt them an enormous blow; I shudder to think how angry they were and how they took it out on his former coworkers.

It has happened numerous times. You just never hear about it, which makes for even more delicious chaos.

It is that very surveillance that will force the NSA rank and file to break ranks.

Grandpop worked for the NSA, they we're tracking employees in the 70's

Government uses Red Tape! It's super effective!

Then you can't buy software from these nations anymore, because it is inferior and contains intentional security vulnerabilities.

[–] Liberty4thewin 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

In other words no. one will want to do business with any security company in the 'eyes' surveillance countries. And as a whole those countries will be more vulnerable when other nation states want to hack them, even if the government uses better encryption, will the "bad guys" not do so as well?
